The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way.
Is there a way for you to live a life that’s over the top? Yes!
First, you need to understand the “mode” you’re living in now. Are you simply in survival mode, just getting by and trying to make it to Friday? Maybe you live in success mode, always striving for personal and financial achievement.
A better choice is to live in significance mode, knowing who you are in Christ and discovering His destiny for your life.
Sadly, most people live in survival or success mode. But living in significance mode is the only way to see God’s plan for your life fulfilled before your very eyes.
Joseph of the Old Testament was a man of significance. Yet what gave his life significance? Purpose. Joseph was a man of purpose. And the person that God uses is someone who lives life with purpose.
God put a dream in Joseph’s heart when he was a young man. And he never forgot God’s dream for his life. Joseph would not let that dream die. He was driven by that dream and consumed by the call of God upon his life.
Because of this driving purpose, Joseph saw every problem as an opportunity for God to work in his life.
So let me ask you today, does an obstacle that you’re facing seem bigger than God?
Remember that it’s not! Nothing you face in life right now is bigger than God. Jesus tells us in Mark 10:27, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.”
People of purpose are not paralyzed by their problems. Because people of purpose who know the Lord Jesus Christ, know there's no panic in heaven… only plans!
REMEMBER THAT GOD IS BIGGER THAN ANY OBSTACLE YOU’RE FACING RIGHT NOW.
